  • House votes to avert government shutdown, path in Senate unclear

    The House voted Thursday night to avert a government shutdown, sending the bill on to the Senate, where its future is much less certain. Shortly before the House vote, the Freedom Caucus said a majority of its members would vote to support a stopgap spending measure, a key sign that holdout conservatives who had been undecided earlier had come on board. Whether the Senate can pass such a measure ahead of a Friday midnight deadline is a different issue altogether. […]

  • Woman confesses to a killing after police spot murder weapon in her Facebook photo

    On the evening of March 24, 2015, Cheyenne Antoine and Brittney Gargol posed for a selfie and posted it on Facebook before heading out for the night. Within hours, 18-year-old Gargol was dead – her body found lying on the side of a road in Saskatchewan, Canada.

    As far as Catholic weddings go, it’s pretty hard to beat being married by the pope – on an airplane.

Vatican officials said it marks the first time a pope has married a couple on a papal plane. It all started when the pair, Paula Podest Ruiz and Carlos Ciuffardi Ellorriaga, began chatting with […]

    Gymnast McKayla Maroney said Larry Nassar’s abuse — or as he called it, “treatment” — began when she was 13 or 14 years old. It continued through her gold medal-winning performance at the 2012 Olympics in London, and didn’t stop until she left the sport completely. “As it turns out, much to my demise, Dr. Nassar was not a doctor, he in fact is, was, and forever shall be, a child molester, and a monster of a human being. End […]
